Request For Aretha Franklin’s Inaugural Hat


The calls began to flood Luke Song’s hat shop not long after Aretha Franklin finished belting out “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Franklin, who wore a gray felt custom-designed hat from Mr. Song Millinery, has inadvertently caused an economic boom for the South Korean immigrant’s store.

Song said he wasn’t prepared for the hundreds of calls requesting the hat with a Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow.

“We even have a lot of men calling to get it for their wives, mothers and grandmothers,” Song said.

The hat worn by the “Queen of Soul” was hand-molded and would cost upward of $500 — if it were for sale, the 36-year-old designer said. Customers instead were offered a satin ribbon version for $179.

“They want the same hat, but they understand it’s for the ‘Queen’ only,” he said. “Ninety-nine percent said, ‘That’s fine. I’ll get the next best thing.'”

The family millinery has been in Detroit for about 25 years, and Franklin has been a customer for about 20 of those years. The store also sells to about 500 boutiques across the country.

“We always make hats for her for high-profile events, so for us, the inauguration really was no big deal,” Song told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The design for Franklin’s hat came from two different hats at the store.

“She walked through the shop and said ‘I want that bow (put) on that hat,'” he said. “She had the coat already, but she needed the hat to set it off.”

Dress Registry.com Lauched

It’s a fashion horror that haunts women everywhere — stepping confidently through the door at a special event only to spy across the room a woman wearing…the exact same thing.

And none are immune. First Lady Laura Bush appeared at the 2006 Kennedy Center Honors in 2006 clad in the same red Oscar de la Renta gown as three other women.

Finally, there is a remedy — http://www.DressRegistry.com. Created by Andrew Jones, the Dress Registry site enables women to record a variety of details about the gown they’re planning to wear to events ranging from charity balls to weddings to high school proms. For a look at the site: DRESSREGISTRY.COM

“What a brilliant website!” says famed dress designer Kay Unger, who created the dress worn to the Democratic National Convention by Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Elect Joe Biden. “You never have to worry about being caught in the same dress as someone else ever again.”

Media outlets from The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times to foreign press from France and China have raced to learn more about the newly released site, as have so many others. DressRegistry.com has logged more than 2.25 million hits from over 60,000 unique visitors in the first nine days of 2009.

“Originality continues to be valued by women everywhere,” said Jones, who lives on the east coast of Florida just north of West Palm Beach. “I’m happy to be able to help women in preserving it, and also greatly appreciative that all I have to do is put on a tux.”

Beyond its practical purposes for balls, charity events and weddings, the Dress Registry also helps exercise a bit of lifestyle voyeurism — giving us a peek at other’s wardrobes.
